The meeting at the White House yesterday morning:

National Security Advisor: "Mr. President, we have located the compound of Osama Bin Laden. We have confirmed his presence there."

Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff: "We can conduct a military operation and neutralize him on your command."

President Obama: "This might not be the right time, maybe we should just keep an eye on him to see what he's up to."

Press Secretary: "Mr. President, according to the latest polls, your approval rating is at its lowest level since you took office."

President Obama: Okay then, kill him!

More a symbolic than strategic victory, but still awesome. I'm sure some of my kindhearted friends will have more eloquent comments....me, I hope that gutless finger-wagging shitbag is roasting in a vat of pork fat in the deepest septic tank of hell...death to fundamentalist Islam!

But very much so psychological. All the "bad guys" out there are now looking over their shoulder more frequently knowing that if we took Osama out without the assistance of the local government, we can certainly come and "remove them from operational continutiy" (i.e. make their head do an impression of an exploding watermelon) whenever we see an opportunity. Always good to get in the head of the enemy (EDIT: Just saw the double meaning there).

Agreed. Although I doubt there will be much effect on al Qaeda's day-to-day ops for the near term, the psychological blow has to be enormous.

I've been watching the coverage here -- CNN Int'l, but also Indian TV and Al Jazeera.

Indian TV already has footage of the raid and has shown Osama's face (bloody but quite recognizable). The various pundits are going on about how the location and lack of involvement of Pakistan's military proves that Pakistan knew all along, sponsors terrorism, etc.

Al Jazeera, meanwhile, is featuring discussions like "the big problem: how to explain to the Pakistani people" why Pakistan's govt and military were apparently not informed.

Very interesting ...

I look forward to reading the inevitable books about the details behind the Special Forces operation. I presume it was Delta Force operators but we'll find out soon enough.

From an initial report:
U.S. Joint Special Operations Command Special Mission Unit (SMU) from the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU — formerly known as Seal Team Six) did the shooting. There were other JSOC spotters on the ground, as well as two special operations helicopters and an unmanned drone overhead.

Thanks to all who provided logistical and operational help to complete this mission. Also President Bush and Obama for persevering in this long twilight struggle.

Where else is there to go when Delta and Seals have you in their sights with orders to kill? The deep blue sea, baby. The deep blue sea.

Bottom of the 9th, 2 outs, game is tied 1-1 with the Phillies and Mets in the city of Brotherly Love, and the crowd starts to chant U-S-A. Must have been bewildering to the players on the field, while the fans in the stands starting getting word on their smart phones that Osama had been assassinated. What a cool moment.

Perhaps it is just semantics, but make no mistake....
Osama was not assisinated. He was hunted down and killed like the dog that he is.!!!

Perhaps it is semantics, but according to Miriam-Webster the definition of assassinate is:
1: to injure or destroy unexpectedly and treacherously
2: to murder (a usually prominent person) by sudden or secret attack often for political reasons

As for "the dog that he is," well that's just plain good old allegory, or is it symbolism? We need Rob to mediate this.

Point being, it was a cool shared experience, at a game that was invented in America, that the fans rallied and cheered at the news of their country's number one enemy has fallen. Maybe not the "where were you when JFK was shot" but I'd wager the 43,000 there will always remember.

Regardlees of definition,
to say we assisinated him makes it sound like we were in the wrong. Misperception on my part, no doubt. I know that it was not your intention to mean we were in the wrong. That's just how it feels to me to say he was assisinated.
We were not Wrong!! This scumbag had it coming.

My apologies to man's best friend everywhere for referring to OBL as a dog in my original post. Poor choice of words on my part. It was an insult to dogs everywhere to refer to him as one.

True, assassination probably wasn't the right word.

"My apologies...it was an insult to dogs everywhere." Now that's funny.
